Proper HVAC ventilation is essential to your family’s health and comfort. Proper HVAC ventilation companies will help you home get rid of moisture, smoke, cooking odors, and indoor pollutants. Same Day Pros has compiled some important knowledge you need to have when it comes to ventilating your home.
The biggest sources of moisture and odors that enter your home come from the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. We suggest that you have three types of exhaust units in your home in order to keep it ventilated properly. You need an exterior venting range hood, a bathroom exhaust fan, and a laundry exhaust fan.
Kitchens today are equipped with a range hood that doesn’t vent anything – it just filters the stove top air. If your kitchen is smelly and your walls stay covered with a film of grease then it may be time for you to install a new range hood. You may also need an exterior venting exhaust fan that will send all of the smoky steamy air out of your home.
Bathrooms are another area in the home that generates a huge amount of moisture. We always recommend that you have at least one exhaust fan in your bathroom. Exhaust fans will get rid of all the bad air through the wall or ceiling leaving your home clean and free of unnecessary moisture.
Just like bathroom exhaust having a good laundry exhaust fan will help remove the moisture of the laundry room. Remember to have dryer vent cleaning at least once a year to ensure the proper exhaust of the dryer.
If you have too much moisture in your home and no way of getting rid of it eventually it can cause a lot of structural damage to your home. Improper structural ventilation can lead to your home rotting over time. It is most important that you have proper ventilation in your attic and the crawlspace. The purpose of a ventilator in your attic is to create an upward flow of air. Cool air flows in through vents in the eaves and flows out through vents near the peak of your roof or crawlspace; we refer to this as cross ventilation. It is always important that you keep a good check on your ventilation systems because anything such as insulation or trash can block the vents causing rot to develop.
